Who We Are

Bestow is a digital life insurance company built on full stack technology and AI. In a world in need of greater financial resilience and protection, Bestow democratizes access to smart financial products and powers some of the world’s leading consumer platforms. We are reimagining and rebuilding a 400-year-old, $7 trillion industry to create a brighter future for millions of families. And we’re just getting started.

The Bestow team is a diverse band of first principles thinkers on a mission to do good. We’re fortunate to be backed by leading investors and partners including Valar Ventures, NEA, 8VC and MunichRe.

As a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer, you will work closely with our User Experience, technical and product teams to develop features using Javascript, Typescript, and frameworks like React and Redux. Our ideal candidate is someone who is a heavy hitter on the front end and has a firm grasp of the backend and how data flows through the whole system.

We have only begun to scratch the surface of the potential of our product and we need your help to fully unlock that potential. Whether that be building our one of a kind internal tooling or rolling out solutions to better introduce customers to life insurance, this role is to help us deliver the right solutions regardless of the context.

You should have instincts on how to architect software, though our architecture process is highly collaborative. We might be small but we've got big ambitions. Folks joining the team will be defining our software engineering culture. You are someone that strives to build a premier engineering organization.
